Triumph & Disaster is a male skincare and accessory range created by Dion Nash that aims to unite the traditional grooming experience with the high quality, natural and scientifically formulated expectations of today’s market. The range’s packaging, developed by New Zealand-based design studio DDMMYY, references and confidently brings the type-heavy, heraldic, structural and material choices of the past into the present with a contemporary consistency and a distinctive white on black colour palette.
Living Earth is a New Zealand-based brand of organic compost created by collecting, recycling and ‘brewing’ green waste likely to have ended up in landfill sites. Digital design agency Fracture, working in collaboration with packaging specialist Ryan Marx, recently redeveloped the brand’s range of compost bags and bottles replacing a plain single and two colour economical design with a bright and playful resolution of vivid spot colours, simple plant illustrations, an expressive character style and a subtle sense of narrative.
Expatrius is a limited edition range of wines created from grapes grown on the eastern end of Waiheke Island, New Zealand, by winemaker Luc Desbonnets. The wine’s label and case, created by print and digital design agency Inhouse, contrast the fine detail and traditional heraldic cues of a hand-etched illustrative crown, a gold block foil emboss and tactile substrate alongside geometric, abstract letter-forms, solid fills and a striking monochromatic colour palette to communicate the heritage, high quality, craft and exclusivity of the wine and a very distinctive and contemporary brand character.
